SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET

Skeletons in the Closet (2009-2012) is a photo series focusing on the backstage areas of the Natural History Museum Vienna. The book features a selection of photographs from the non-public parts of the museum, including storage rooms, basements and depots. The non-staged photographs of the series highlight the random interactions between the stored exhibits amongst each other or the surrounding spaces. Skeletons in the Closet is a collection of sometimes absurd sceneries and strange still lives, accompanied by written reflections on the bloody past of natural history museums.
